As I buried my heart rat this evening it reminded me of this scene from #gardenstate except he was the only pet I have buried in my back yard.
So it’s been almost a year where I have completely left behind those convenient plastic bags. Man, they were every where. I must say I may have an overwhelming amount of re-useable bags now in the truck of my car, in my house and maybe at work BUT I have not brought those darn plastic bags home with me. It took some getting used to. I have had my fair share of moments with my hands full of items walking out of the store hoping I don’t drop anything because I didn’t want a bag. But I learned. My boyfriend definitely has gotten used to the “No bags please”. He has also leant me those arms as we both walk out with hands full because we forgot a bag. What have I learned? You get used to it. It feels good. You are more prepared. You shop more realistically, especially at the grocery store. My fridge is even more organized since I don’t have all those produce bags. Just saying. On this bag journey of mine I have made a another small change. I gift in reusable bags. I think its extremely thoughtful and creative. Hey, it starts with one small change thats all. Leave those darn things behind! #zerowastejourney #realisticzerowaste #thereclaimedjar #saynotoplasticbags #gardenstate #zerowastenewjersey #newjersey #onesmallstep #zerowaste
PSA- most of NJ is not the shore or highly populated areas near NYC... most of it is beautiful & rural, with lots of woods & farms, and I live and grew up in one of those rural areas. My husband & I are in the process of building a house on 4 acres of land, with a farm across the street from us. New Jersey’s not called the Garden State for nothing!🌲🍁🍅🍎#newjersey #gardenstate
